Failed State Index Number 14...
Whenever I hear people lament that Nigeria "was fast becoming a failed state". I often wonder if they don't realise the definition 9f failed states or they haven't seen one.
Dear Friends, Nigeria is a typical example of a failed state, the environment shows the state has failed, the electoral process shoes that it's a failed state, the propagation of poverty says it's a failed state, internal colonialism by the Fulani shows it's a failed state, the lack of development and the refuse dumps we refer to as towns and cities shows it's a failed state!
The 1999 Constitution is a solemn proof of the failure of the Nigerian State!
Nigeria is used as examples in research Institutes in Europe, the Americas and South East Asia as an example of a failed state under the Research Topic "Failed States and Resource Curse".
Every other person outside Nigeria is fully aware that the Nigerian State has failed; ironically, Nigerians are yet to be told that their state had since failed!
Well, see the picture below; it's the Global Failed State Index for 2018. Nigeria is Number 14 ahead of Afghanistan at Number 9. Nigeria has failed so we ought not be afraid that it has; all we are pushing for is #restructureOrConfederate in order to avoid bloodshed, or #DissolveOrBurst. As per the country being a failed country, it is officially known globally.
I'd tell you what: very many Nigerians do not realize that Nigeria is typical failed state because most have never seen a state that works; their worldview is Nigeria...never have they experienced an "unfailed state".
And yes, despite these obvious data, some would still argue in determined ignorance! Typical!
